What was New on Netflix UK This Week? (26th October 2018)

Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:

This week has been very quiet on Netflix UK but that’s not to say there haven’t been some great additions. The big show on people’s lips right now is Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – a reboot, of sorts, of Sabrina the Teenage Witch but this time much darker and that follows the Archie comics too. The show is a spin-off from “Riverdale” which is a Netflix Original in the UK.

A popular addition this week has been the DC animated film Batman Ninja which follows the Dark Knight as he travels back in time to feudal Japan to face his regular foes. Another popular film is Den of Thieves which, according to Exploding Helicopter on Twitter, “If you like unshaven, muscular men in vests acting with ludicrous machismo then this is the film for you.”

Another recommendation from Twitter came from Scared but Important! who suggests the English version of Baahubali: The Beginning saying “I watched the Tamil version of this a week ago. It’s certainly an experience. People should check it out.” The film follows villagers in the kingdom of Mahismati that rescue a baby who is destined to embark on a heroic quest. Superbad is a fun, late-night comedy film worth watching that sees best friends trying to buy booze in order to fins girls at parties.

The second season of Great News was added this week which was the final season of the NBC comedy show before it got cancelled. The series follows a TV news producers whose mum comes to join her at work. Castlevania season 2 was also added this week; this animated series is a modern take on Dracula based on the classic video games of the same name.

And, for something different, we have the French film The Most Assassinated Woman in the World. This film, set in 1930s Paris, tells the story of an actress famous for her gory death scenes at the Grand Guignol Theater who has to contend with a mysterious stalker and ghosts from her past.
